It seems that the Aquino administration is continuously tested by threats and challenges, more often in buses. Last year, after months of being at the chair as President of the Philippines, a Hong Kong tourist bus was hostage by Mendoza and killed many innocent lives. Fresh from that, now it's bus bombing. What will be the next? Would it be also in bus? (author's opinion)
